North Texas Pros Rumble in Jordan Cup

The James P. Jordan Cup Matches - pitting teams representing the Northern Texas PGA and the South Central PGA sectionals in Ryder Cup-style competition - wasn't much of a contest this year. The NTPGA team played the role of Europeans, and the SCPGA team looked like the Americans.

Here's a report from the NTPGA:

BROKEN ARROW, Oklahoma – The Northern Texas PGA team played three solid rounds of team golf to capture back the Jordan Cup from the South Central PGA team in the 2006 James P. Jordan Cup Matches. The 15.5 to 8.5 victory by the NTPGA brings the Cup back to the Northern Texas Section after a one-year absence. Captained by Dean Larsson, an assistant golf professional at Bent Tree Country Club in Dallas, the NTPGA team really turned up the play during the
Foursome Matches when they won the Monday afternoon session 5 – 1.

The James P. Jordan Cup is a “Ryder Cup” style event contested between a team of twelve of the top playing assistant golf professionals in the Northern Texas Section against a team of the twelve top playing assistant golf professionals in the South Central Section (Oklahoma, Arkansas and southern Kansas). The Northern Texas PGA Team now leads 14-2 all time in the Matches.

The NTPGA had an 8 – 4 point lead following the Four-Ball (best-ball) matches and the afternoon Foursome (alternate shot) matches on Monday. The NTPGA took seven single matches and halved another to solidify a great team win.

The James P. Jordan Cup Matches are an annual competition between teams of assistant golf professionals from the Northern Texas PGA Section and the South Central PGA Section. The Matches are named for the late James P. Jordan, a past chairman of the Salesmanship Club of Dallas and Northwood Club member.

Match results can be found on the NTPGA Web site.
